The Royal Automobile Museum

If you have some time left before you end your stay in Jordan and especially when you travel with young male adults (and older ones too…..), it is worthwhile to visit the Royal Automobile  Museum in Central Amman, next to the Al Hussein Public Parks. Established in 2003, this museum exhibits the vast car collection of the kingdom’s beloved and very popular former King Hussein, who ruled the country from 1956 up to his death in 1999.   

This museum is also home to the rover that was used in filming the movie “The Martian” starring Matt Damon. They filmed a part of movie at Wadi Rum as the backdrop of the Martian scenes.
